KQED 9: Sun, Apr 19, 2015 -- 5:30 PM

On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend examines an increasingly prevalent form of computer hacking that's also draining victims' bank accounts: Ransomware. It's a type of software that hackers use to hold individuals' computers hostage, blocking access to all files, unless they agree to pay a ransom, usually with Bitcoins. And because anyone with an internet connection is vulnerable to attack, the problem highlights a growing threat that consumers face on both their personal computers and mobile devices. NewsHour's William Brangham reports from Massachusetts.

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend explores a new take on climate change activism that's spreading throughout the world. Frustrated by the slow pace of progress, an Oregon-based environmental group is using a novel legal strategy called "atmospheric trust litigation" to try to force governments to take action on climate change. And the movement is being led those who have a higher stake in the welfare of future generations -- students. NewsHour's Megan Thompson reports from Oregon.

KQED 9: Sun, Apr 12, 2015 -- 5:30 PM

NewsHour Weekend examines an ambitious new plan in San Francisco to completely end new HIV infections. About 50,000 people become infected with HIV every year in the US and an estimated 13,700 still die from AIDS, even as improved treatments make the virus more manageable. While infections in San Francisco have been falling over the past eight years, they haven't gone away. And in a city where huge strides have been made in battling the epidemic that's killed tens of thousands of people, public health officials, doctors and activists are increasing their efforts to bring the number of new HIV infections down to zero. NewsHour's John Carlos Frey reports from San Francisco.

KQED 9: Sat, Apr 11, 2015 -- 5:30 PM

On Saturday, pay the highest electricity costs in the country. In the tropical climate where federal and state tax credits make going solar a no-brainer, many homeowners have chosen to install rooftop panels. But in some parts of the state, the local utility company has slowed down approvals of new solar systems, saying that abundant users may threaten the safety and reliability of the power grid. And as the popularity of using rooftop solar energy permeates throughout the rest of the country, many Americans could soon enter the same gridlock. NewsHour Special Correspondent Mike Taibbi reports from Oahu, Hawaii.

On NewsHour Sunday, Jeffery Brown sits down with Moss who says the issue still resonates with her.

KQED 9: Sat, Apr 4, 2015 -- 5:30 PM

On Saturday, NewsHour Weekend explores one of the most famous streets in the world: The Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem, which follows the path where it is said Jesus was tried and convicted and later crucified and burned. While it's only about a 10-minute walk, the street can be a profound religious and emotional experience for Christians from around the world. But now there's renewed debate about whether the millions of pilgrims who visit every year have been walking the wrong way. NewsHour's Martin Fletcher reports.
